OK, I guess Starlings can be kind of pretty sometimes, too

This fellow was outside my office window yesterday afternoon. My usual reaction to European Starlings is something along the lines of: "yechh, starlings." Aside from the aggressively invasive aspect, I generally just think they look ugly. But every once in a while, in the right light, one of them changes my mind just a little. Oh, starlings.


  1. You certainly took a fab picture of him/her. Just a bit of iridescence - perky little face - stunning, shapely beak! Nice shot!

  2. Thanks, hikeagiant2! I like it when starlings surprise me like that. :)
